Academy Smites THN

Excuse me for being a touch behind on this story, as I have not watched the Academy Awards since 1982 when the show was on the same time as the Georgetown vs. North Carolina national championship game. I was overruled that night by my mother and sisters (my dad was away on float), so I swore to never watch the Oscars ever again.

In fact, I almost became an actor so that I could be nominated for an Oscar and then still not show up for the award show.

Of course, if I had done that, I would have probably been left off the postmortem montage in the year after I died. Just like Farrah Fawcett and Bea Arthur. Two broads who have a huge impact here on The Hater Nation.

I have always been quite taken with Farrah from the moment that she admitted that she liked to have sex under trees during her performance in the Cannonball Run. That and the fact that she refused to wear a bra.

And Bea has long been a part of THN's roasts.

There is no reasonable explanation as to why these two women where left off the portion of the Academy Awards when they honor those fallen Hollywood stars. There was a flimsy excuse that these women were more television stars. While true, but they were in their fair share of prominent movies.

Yes, even bigger than the Cannonball Run. Not that you can believe that.

But WTF academy? Farrah was snubbed by dying the same day as Michael Jackson and you give him some love during the Oscar's telecast? Good lord, what movie was he ever in?

This is clearly a joke, and if I am not mistaken the Academy has done this before when it neglected to include Stu Nahan into its montage (or at least we think it did).

I have a feeling this gals will dominate the GA banner again this year.

Also, nothing of the smackdown the Sports Dork received?

We're saving that up. I am way behind here.

Farrah's lone bikini poster had more cultural impact than all of Heath Ledger's roles combined.

And then there's Maude.

Er, it was a one-piece? Well, I know it was cold.
